Stephen Malkmus

After Pavement announced they were going on hiatus at the end of 1999, the status of one of America's finest indie rock bands was a mystery for the first half of 2000. It became clearer that summer, however, when it was revealed that both singer/songwriter/guitarists Stephen Malkmus and Scott Kannberg were preparing solo albums. Malkmus was particularly busy during that time, performing new songs with Kim's Bedroom -- a one-off group that also included Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon and Jim O'Rourke -- that spring in Holland, and recording them at studios near his hometown of Portland, Oregon. Working with him were the Jicks, aka Portland indie rock veterans drummer/percussionist John Moen and bassist Joanna Bolme. Moen had played with the Fastbacks, the Dharma Bums, and his own group, the Maroons; Bolme played with the Minders and worked as an engineer at Jackpot Studios, where Pavement's Terror Twilight was demoed and parts of Malkmus' new project were recorded. Initially, Malkmus intended to release the album on his own or through a local label, but when his old label, Matador, received a copy, they agreed to release it. By the time Malkmus officially confirmed Pavement's breakup in the November 2000 issue of Spin magazine, Matador announced it was releasing the album -- originally titled Swedish Reggae and then changed to Stephen Malkmus -- in winter 2001. The Jicks made their live debut that January at New York's Bowery Ballroom and spent the rest of the winter and spring touring the U.K. and the U.S., including a gig at South by Southwest with labelmates Mogwai and the reunited Soft Boys. Former Pavement percussionist Bob Nastanovich acted as the Jicks' tour manager and Elastica leader Justine Frischmann -- another friend of Malkmus' -- joined the band as a guitarist for selected dates. On 2003's darker, trippier Pig Lib, the Jicks shared credit with Malkmus, reflecting the album's more band-like feel. Released in 2005, Face the Truth -- on which Malkmus embraced domesticity with a whimsical feel missing from his work since Wowee Zowee -- featured Malkmus with and without the Jicks, who also supported him on tour that summer. On 2008's Real Emotional Trash, the Jicks welcomed former Sleater-Kinney drummer Janet Weiss into their fold, giving the album's psychedelic free-for-alls greater heft. Mirror Traffic followed in 2011, featuring Beck stepping in as producer and Weiss taking her last bow as the Jicks' drummer. Moving to Berlin just before the release of Mirror Traffic in 2011, Malkmus would use this uprooting of his family as the catalyst of inspiration for his sixth album. Returning to the studio in 2013, Malkmus and co. enlisted the production skills of former Pavement live engineer Remko Schouten to record 2014's Wig Out at Jagbags. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi

Pandora should have a 3rd thumbs up button. Meaning you think the song is okay but don't play it often as the current 'like button ;)
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in the next 2 days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and you lovers name will appear on the screen in BIG letters this is so scary cus it actually works!

Yeah, he is from Stockton. We grew up in the same neighborhood and he was on my little league baseball team. His high school band was called Straw Dogs
Pavement's/S M ' s music is one of those groups where you get it and u love it, or u don't so u hate it. Thank god I'm in the former group. Flashback to summer 99, a buddy convinces me to go w/ him to see pavement,.ev e n tho I wasn't really familiar w/ their music. I left that show w/ a brand new perspective of what great music was. Now Indie rock is such an important part of my life and I owe alot of that to Malkmus. So if u don't like them,.shut up and play something else, no need to diss em.
F**king Pavement!
What is this juvenile garbage ? Get offa my Pandora
This song is awkward o.O
less squabble more wobble
Longfade1... I disagree with your taste in music. Take that!
I've experienced many righteous moments with Pig Lib playing in the background. Thank you for that!

Pavement was great and and Malkmus did a fine job solo. I think any time you steel all your ideas from Mark E. Smith/ The Fall, you will do well. love it all
Not as good as Pavement - few things are.
chrismoi
In his solo work it shows where a lot of Pavements texture came from. His stuff is the continuation of indie rock and he has gotten better IMO. BTW - he is from Norcal but I heard he left California for the greener pastures of Portland, OR.

i agree with cloudbreak0. Pig Lib is a great album. i like Pavement but Stephen is just as good by himself.

You all have no clue what you are talking about. Stephen Malkmus is the s**t. Pig Lib is one of the better albums that I have ever heard. I love it. Keep it up buddy.
pavement is awesome but stephen malkums is s**tty by him self, and grandaddy only has a select few good songs i can count them on my fingers. and ps no one should ever dis on pavement.
Ah, this guy's from Pavement. No wonder I hated it the second I heard it. What a freaking joker.
God, it's astounding what kind of crap you can get away with when you stack your lineup with so much indie cred. It never ceases to amaze me, how indescrimina t e most listeners are.
there's lots of people listening to Stephen Malkmus, probably moreso than Grandaddy. he makes great music.
